Yes, the butt dino says good. ;)

I immediately noticed a difference once I left my dealership. Car seems to be a little more torquey in around town mode, and the raising of the rev-limter by 200rpm also felt really cool once I floored it. Noticable difference at highway speed also.

The thing I liked the most about it was the low end torque feel when driving around the city in traffic. You can jump into open spaces a bit easier now. I would have to say that and the raising of the rev-limiter were the most noticable effects of the upgrade.

I'll keep you guys posted if I ever do get the Conforti software.

: Sadly I was impatient and not willing to send my ECU out to have it reprogrammed so I ended up getting the Dinan ECU at my dealership instead. However, I am planning to go head and try out Jim's software due to all the great things I have heard about it this winter, sadly I blew $400 for nothing.

: You mentioned that you did get the Dinan ECU, right? So how did it feel? Any noticeable difference detected by the 'butt-dyno'?

: Thanks,
